Title: Christmas at Silver Falls
Author: Jenny Hale
Publication Day: 15/10/19
This is one of those books where I just advise you to grab yourself a copy to read for yourself rather than reading my review. Mind you, I could probably say that about any books by this fantastic author!
This is a delightful festive romance, filled with family, hope, love and opportunities if only you’re brave enough to risk taking them. White Oaks Inn is owned and run by Scarlett Bailey’s gran and it is where her family go to celebrate Christmas. However, this old fashioned hotel is now in dire financial straits and may have to be sold. Scarlett decides to try to save the family hotel by contacting Charlie Bryant, a property developer staying in the area but never anticipated just how life changing this will prove to be for everyone concerned!
As usual, Jenny Hale has written an engaging, enthralling story with great characters it is easy to relate to. Scarlett and Charlie prove that opposites attract and their interactions could prove explosive and not always in a good way. As secrets are slowly revealed their relationship grows but will they give their love a chance or will the past come between them?
I have absolutely no hesitation in highly recommending this and everything else I’ve read by this author. This is a story to take you through a gamut of emotions but leave you with a smile on your face in the end. I requested and was gifted a copy of this book via NetGalley and this is my honest review.
A beautiful festive romance, all about the joy of Christmas with family, second chances, and finding love under the falling snow. This enchanting and uplifting read will have you both laughing and crying while it warms your heart.
White Oaks Inn has always been at the heart of Christmas celebrations for Scarlett Bailey and her family. Her adored gran has owned the rambling, old-fashioned hotel, filled with the scent of cinnamon and chocolate, since Scarlett was a little girl. But now her gran’s home is under threat. And it looks like it could be the Baileys’ last Christmas together there…
Over the holiday season, amidst much-loved festive traditions of baking cookies and decorating the tree, Scarlett throws herself into saving the hotel. When she hears that Charlie Bryant, a handsome, successful property developer, is spending December in Silver Falls, Scarlett is hopeful he might be the answer to their problems.
When they meet, sparks fly between impulsive Scarlett and business-like Charlie – as they both have very different ideas for the future of White Oaks. Scarlett is determined to show him how much White Oaks Inn means to her family and the guests who return there every year and, as they spend more time together, she begins to realize there is more to Charlie than his serious appearance…
But Charlie is struggling with a secret from his own past. Will he be able to face it, or will it stop him from truly opening up and getting close to anyone? And can Scarlett share the true meaning of Christmas with him and save her gran’s beloved hotel along the way?
Embrace the wonder of Christmas in this gorgeous novel about living for the moment and finding love when you least expect it. Christmas at Silver Falls is the perfect festive indulgence for fans of Debbie Macomber, Susan Mallery and Sheila Roberts.

When I graduated college, one of my friends said, “Look out for this one; she’s going to be an author one day.” Despite being an avid reader and a natural storyteller, it wasn’t until that very moment that the idea of writing novels occurred to me.
Sometimes our friends can see the things that we can’t.
While I didn’t start straight away, that comment sowed a seed and several years, two children, and hundreds of thousands of words later, I completed a novel that I felt was worthy of publication. The result was Coming Home for Christmas, a heart-warming story about the magic of love at Christmas, and 2017 TV movie on The Hallmark Channel.
The rest is history.
When I’m not writing, I’m a mother of two boys and a wife to a very supportive husband.
